Moscow Attacks Ben Gurion; Claims He is Dragging Israel into War

The Moscow radio, broadcasting an article from the official Soviet Government organ “Izvestia, ” today bitterly attacked Israel and claimed that the Israel Government “is doing its best to drag the country into a military hell.”

The “Izvestia” article, as summarized by the Moscow radio, is especially bitter against Israel’s Premier David Ben Gurion. It charges him with “stubbornly pursuing” a pro-NATO policy and “consistently risking the possibility of a war with the Arab states.”
